To those who have were held --> reserved or anyone else that can weigh in here:

I wrote and sent a LOCI in the last week of February when I was first held.

Is sending in a second LOCI recommended now that I've been waitlisted?

Yes.. but be sure to have something new about you to include in the LOCI (not just the undying love for CLS) :).

Yea, that's the hardest part. I'm seriously looking around for new things to include. I don't even have enough for a haiku at this point.


Edit: forgot to thank you for the help. you can see my mental agitation.

Continuing notifications about the reserve list are through email, yes? As in notifying you if you've been admitted/sent to second reserve/dinged. Or are they still sticking to this "ding by snail mail" silliness?

How do you get to the web form where you can submit LOCIs?

Hello all,

My roommate was just waitlisted at Columbia Law a few days ago and has a question regarding LOCI. We live in Spain, he would like to know if he should send a LOCI via email to the Dean of Admissions and the admissions committee or if he should print it and send a hard copy instead (which may take considerably more time). What do you think?

i think the LOCI via email is fine. print it out, sign it, scan it, and attach as PDF to email.

I browsed through last year's thread and it looks like a select handful of folks were contacted on May 8 (Tuesday) to schedule a brief phone interview with a member of the selection committee prior to being admitted from the reserve list. Hopefully some of us will hear from them this week.

I'm hoping that because NYU just admitted a wave of people off reserve, that Columbia will follow suit, from all those HYS bound people both schools have admitted.

Yep. I actually ED'd to CLS and got reserved. I have a preference for CLS over NYU (though I love them both) - my top choices were always 1. CLS, 2. Penn = NYU (at equal scholarships).

I don't think I'd get enough money from CLS or NYU (if any) to sway me though :? .

Chicago I am thinking of withdrawing from the waitlist...
